    In the past I've got away with using liquid poly, a little in the axle box hole, leave a minute or so, then press in the bearing, afterall once fitted with the wheels it can't fall out unless the wheels assembly breaks off.

    That is the method I have used in the past, I just make a small nick with the tip of my craft knife at the holes edge to let the air out when pushing the bearing in, you can just hold the bearing until it is stuck though.

    Cheers, Pete.

    Sometimes a 'Thick' Superglue is handy rather than the cheap (and very runny!) thin stuff Mark. It tends to stay where it's applied to rather than run everywhere. This is the sort of stuff I mean, obtainable from Screwfix.

    They also stock the 'Debonder', useful if you end up sticking your fingers together!!!:giggle::giggle::giggle:

    While we're on about glue's, another tip especially on larger van kits, before gluing the roof in place drill a couple of vent holes in the floor to allow the solvent to flash off, so that it doesn't warp the sides, as you need quite a bit of solvent to stick the roof down.
